Best Of The Web: More Red Flags & Going On Strike


And being the fun girlfriend and being sexy without trying.

Well, dammit, the summer is officially over. Sure football season is in-effect and I'll probably stop sweating non-stop but I've had to retire my white linen pants and tiny bikinis are basically out. Harrumph. Well here's the best stuff going down on the old ‘net:

First off, at the home office, starting on October 1 we have a 31-day challenge to improve your sex life. Everyday a tip from our YourTango Experts. Fingers crossed that Halloween will involve costumes. Join YourTango's 31-Day Sex Challenge This October

Evidently, not everyone needs a sex challenge, our lil homies at College Candy have a lil somethin' about which colleges are in America's most sexually satisfied cities. I suppose I could work on a PhD in Getting Crunk at Bulter. Hmm. And The Most Romantic City In America Is...

And while we're still talking about college chicks, the lads at Asylum tell us about a study that declares drunk girls kiss for boys' attention. It doesn't make it clear if the boys are drunk too or why Joe Francis gets to be a multi-millionaire. Where The Boys Aren't. A Secret Lesbian Town?

And now, as they say on Monty Python, for something completely different. My pals Em & Lo ( have some tough love for a lady that needs to pull the plug on a crummy relationship. Great advice for when to end it.

Sometimes you have to end it before it really gets started. David Wygant writing for the Huffington Post has a few first date pointers for getting a really good idea of what you're getting yourself into and extricating yourself as quickly as you see some red flags. Let's not mistake quirks for major personality flaws, ladies.

Occasionally, before you can get to a first date things swing hard into the inescapable friend zone. Lemondrop has the 411 on what to do with this terrible internment camp and how to try to tunnel your way out.

Part of escaping from the friend zone is looking at someone in a new light. My bud Simone Grant breaks down the ways that people can change for the better. Like when Jay Mohr went from being an ulcerated asshole to being a pretty OK guy. Dig? 3 Ways to Ensure Your Relationship Survives Change

Sometimes people change for the worse. Mom Logic has word of a new mom going on a sex strike… and it may actually be justified. Normally, I think withholding sex are the nuclear weapons of domestic détente.

Not all sexytime has to be XXX. We teamed up with Glo to bring you the top ten g-rated sexy activities. Cooking together is a good one too… because after you cook, then you eat, then you do the dishes, aw yeah baby, then you let your stomachs settle, uhhhh huh, then you sizzle. Four Red-Hot Recipes From An Aphrodisiac Cookbook

On the same track as sizzle, Jessica Wakeman for The Frisky wants to be a fun girlfriend. Be careful, lil mama, like being a party animal, not all of us are built to be fun girlfriends but that doesn't mean you have to be a wet blanket girlfriend.

At the awesome Very Smart Brothas they discuss the things you women do "without even knowing it" that drive us good crazy. So, just do those things and try to make it look like you're not trying. Also, look up the word insouciance.

And finally our good bros at Bad Online Dates has word from a bartender on what everyone really thinks of the drunk, easy girl. This guy thinks Meredith on The Office is hilarious.
